The Three Musicians: A Chilren's Book Inspired by Pablo Picasso
This children’s book is beautifully illustrated in the style of Pablo Picasso, introducing children to aspects of the great artist’s work. It spins a tale of music’s ability to soothe a savage beast by drawing on details of Picasso’s masterpiece Three Musicians (1921). Artist Vanessa Hié uses brightly hued watercolors, bold lines, and graphic images to familiarize children with Picasso’s style, while the book closes with a reproduction of Picasso’s original painting and an engaging lesson on the artist’s use of images and symbols, his fascination with theater and music, and his passionate pleas for peace in the wake of world war. Written by Véronique Massenot for children 4 and up.
